Great Value at Hanare


Efforts to try and secure dinner reservations at Teppei had been futile so far and I have since given up.  I figured from a few friends' reviews that Teppei's omakase is simply super value for money and great fun with Teppei-san's personality. But food wise, nothing too spectacular. 

But I wanted to try the chirashi-don though and was glad when Hanare came about because the most instagrammed (in my view :) chirashi-don now could be had without a queue!

The chirashi was brimming to the top with fresh mixed sashimi. I loved that there were loads of my favourite hamachi and salmon belly. But what I didn't like was the chopped spring onions that were too sharp in flavour and killed the taste buds for tasting the fish properly.  Additionally, the rice that night was a little gummy and not seasoned sufficiently (i.e. tasted like gummy, white rice). The only advantage to that is that I didn't need to stop myself from devouring all the rice :).  But the bottle of tasty furikake did help somewhat :)

 


The anago box meal was steaming hot and generous. I love that the rice below had been seasoned and bits of chopped anago and egg mixed in for more flavour in each bite. 




A simple conclusion that Hanare offers extremely good value home-style Japanese cooking and no frills.  I would come back for the chirashi (just hold the spring onions) or buffet if the daily meal calls out to me.

I love the bara set here too. I have returned probably 3-4 times this year for he value for money chirashi.

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at iherb.com.  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
